Deposit and Payment Schedule for Private Ski Programs

In order to secure your place in a program a deposit of 25% is due at the time of registration. We cannot hold your place without this deposit. The balance of the trip fees is due 60 days prior to the starting day of the trip. This is the balance due date. For registration after the balance due date, full payment is due at the time of registration. If full payment is not received by the balance due date and other arrangements are not made with us, we reserve the right to consider your registration canceled.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

If you cancel your enrollment for any reason the following policy applies:

  • If you cancel 60 days or more before the balance due date, you will receive a refund of all payments and deposit.
  • Cancellation occurring after the 60 day balance due date will result in a complete forfeiture of all fees, except as noted below.

Given the difficulty of making travel plans, if you are unable to travel due to official COVID related travel restrictions or quarantine requirements, any deposits paid toward your program are fully refundable.

There are a few limitations to this refund:

  • Travel restrictions or quarantine requirements need to be official, government edicts.
  • Nonrefundable deposits we paid on your behalf (typically hut or hotel deposits) are not refundable.
  • You must cancel your trip with us before the start date.
  • If travel is permitted but requires a negative test result either before your departure or after your arrival, and you test positive, we may not be able to refund your fees, depending on how your inability to participate impacts the group finances. What we are trying to avoid is a situation in which we are obliged to run the trip for other members of your group, but don't have the income to meet our wage target.

Trip cancellation, Interruption and Emergency Evacuation Insurance

In order to protect yourself from the loss of nonrefundable fees we strongly recommend you purchase trip cancellation insurance. This type of insurance will allow you to recover fees resulting from cancellation due to personal or family illness occurring before or during your program.

Conditions of Participation

There are a number of conditions required for participation in our programs. These include, but are not limited to agreement with, and understanding of the cancellation and refund policy outlined above.
